Mary Robinette Kowal sez, "Many authors struggle to write beyond what they know and write the other. While conventions are tackling this material, there is frequently not enough time to delve into this tricky and nuanced skill. The Writing the Other Workshop and Retreat is designed to have lessons and conversations at a more advanced level. By pairing it with a retreat, we give the participants an opportunity to work on projects in a nurturing environment. This weeklong event gives you one on one time with the instructors David Anthony Durham, K. Tempest Bradford, Mary Robinette Kowal, Nisi Shawl, and Cynthia Ward."
The week kicks off with three full days of classroom time, including breakout sessions, workshops, and writing exercises. All on-campus meals are included during the week.
Starting on Wednesday evening, the remainder of the week is time for you to put what you learned to good use, and write. Each day will have additional breakout groups as an opportunity for authors to ask questions specific to their projects.
Registration opens at noon EST on Sunday October 13, 2013. There are 24 openings available.
